Mickguard Posted January 2, 2007 Report Share Posted January 2, 2007 I know that standard Fender neck pocket specs call for a 5/8 inch (16mm) pocket -- but the neck I'm using isn't that thick --it's only 25 mm at the center (it's a one-piece all-in-one maple MIM neck). I plan to use it with a vintage style tremolo. The big question: since according to Fender specs, the tremolo should ride up a bit at the rear (3.2 mm) --how much of that should be added to the total saddle height in order for me to determine how deep I should route the neck pocket? And suppose I decide to block the trem against the body --will this mean that the neck will end up being too high? I've been trying to draw this all out but I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this in the meantime-- I'm all set up to route but suddenly realized this might be an issue.
